The Colony of Szalyland is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 463 million Szalylanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jellystan. The average income tax rate is 55.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Szalylandian economy, worth 44.3 trillion Trols a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,756 Trols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, the newest shade developed by Szalyland's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, and what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Szalyland's national animal is the Parrot, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Szalyland is ranked 74,796th in the world and 72nd in Refugia for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 3,144.01 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
